On the Planning Board
I have more books planned for all of my existing series, and I am in the planning stages of two new series and several stand-alone novels. I have enough projects on the planning board to keep me busy for many years.
The process of writing a story is fun and messy and riddled with mistakes and changes. I may get halfway through a book before I feel the story needs to go in another direction in order to remain true to the characters. I've tossed out half a book (2 books, actually) before when it didn't feel right. These are among the many reasons why I don't share details about my various works-in-progress until I get closer to a completion date.
I write in a combination of longhand and typing, which means sometimes the writing is really fast and other times snail-paced slow (and I write under two pen names). Some years I may write one book, other years it may be two or three, and if life or a story requires it, a year may be skipped. Each book takes as long as it takes.
